A woman has dreams that she is a werewolf so she goes out and finds men. She proceeds to have sex with them and then rip their throats out with her teeth. She eventually falls in love but then she is raped and her lover is murdered so she goes out for revenge.
Werewolf Woman is a step above most genre films. Although it is ultimately a soft core horror film trying to masquerade as a psychological study, its approach to its subject matter is original enough to set it apart.
Even though its title and poster art make it sound like one of a thousand other supernatural thrillers, Werewolf Woman is closer to a psychological thriller. A young woman who was raped as a child becomes convinced she is a werewolf after learning of an ancestor who was killed for supposedly being one. Under the influence of her delusion, she embarks on a killing spree directed at men.
Many will see this film’s approach as just a pretentious way of disguising the film’s soft core porn heart. The level of nudity and sexuality in the film brings it closer to an X than an R, with large amounts of full frontal female nudity, and semi-graphic depictions of oral sex and masturbation. Nevertheless, whether it is a facade or not, the film’s method is unique, and makes it a much more interesting watch.
